Forum: GratefulDead Subject: Re: Trip down memory lane....

I like mid-to-late 82 a lot. One of those time periods where the band sounds generally tight and focused with good fluency. This is part of a string of shows I find quite strong. The skill and finesse of Jerry's guitar work during this era refutes a lot of easy assumptions about the effect of his drug addictions. Perhaps it's just projection and assumption, but sometimes I feel like I can get a bit of "narcotic contact high" listening to his guitar lines.
